Policy Development. Leader's Manual. Keys to School Boardsmanship. A Program of Continuing Education for School Board Members.
Wolfe, Leslie G.
The materials in this manual are designed to help workshop leaders prepare for and present a workshop for school board members on the variety of variables that must be considered in the course of developing board policy. In the course of the workshop, board members are encouraged to develop stronger self-confidence as policy makers and increased understanding of their roles and the procedures involved in the policy-making process. The manual consists of six sections: an introduction; three sections on planning, presenting, and evaluating the workshop; a selection of resource materials; and a booklet for workshop participants. The discussion of planning contains information on the focus and scope of the workshop, an overview of workshop presentation, the grouping of participants, and familiarization with resource materials and equipment. The presentation section includes sequential descriptions of workshop activities, leader focuses for each activity, and instructions for conducting the activities. The resource materials provided include a paper on policy formation, a reprint of a published lecture on policy-making in the public sector, and masters from which transparencies for projection at the workshop can be reproduced.
